Notes: Begun by Horace Mann, secretary of the Massachusetts Board of Education, this semimonthly was one of the most important education journals of its time. Devoted to the cause of education, it proposed to improve the "common" schools and other means of education, to report on laws relating to schools and on the proceedings of the Massachusetts Board of Education as well as to explain the duties of parents and teachers, and address children on good behavior. Contents included essays and articles on Boston schools, children, teaching, books, and other education-related subjects and it also published letters, biographical material, anecdotes, lessons in grammar and other subjets, and extracts from various sources.b

Subject: amazing - same as today
When reading through its entirety, it's is obvious the reading is from well over a century ago. But reading pages at a time, the contemporary ideals Mann attributes many of the problems we see today in public education as were over a century ago. We in education don't seem to learn from our mistakes - we only repeat them. Taking a good look at what Mann is saying is one of the few ways we can continue to improve on a system that will remain broken if we do not.
